Urban Outreach

Our Urban Outreach programme aims to give young people access to 1:1 therapeutic support.

We want to provide a safe space for young people who find themselves excluded and marginalised in school, at home and/or in society to open up about how they are feeling and what they may have gone through.

The most fundamental aspect of social, emotional and psychological development is the relationships you have with people around you.

Therefore, if we can create the capacity for these relationships to develop, young people can begin to mentalise their position and work on ways to better their situation.

“The VIP worker has become a safe haven for him when he feels he may need adult support or guidance.”

“Having support from people who actually seem to understand what you’re going through is amazing.”

“The involvement of the Violence Intervention Project in the management of my case has felt like a significant game-changer.”
